Unfortunately I can't give a concrete estimate. I'm at the mercy of a manufacturer that is making a custom sensor array for it, and they are having some difficulties.

I expect to have some video of a working prototype in about a month, with field testing and some refinements to follow.

Just keep us updated.
I am soo happy with mine that I buy your 4 cylinder version in a fling.
I have got a Yamaha J6S Diversion (wife's bike) just waiting for it.

By the way, not sure if I posted it before, but I traded in my 1150RT for a 1200RT at the dealer were I purchased it in the first place.
After hearing my 1150RT idle, he called one of his BMW Mechanics over, to show him how smooth it was.
The original sales guy, I saw again a week later after the trade in, commented that he took my old 1150RT home and said that the bike was like transformed from when he sold it to me and now.
So a good valve adjustment with careful synch can make a tremendous difference.

Hey Grok,

Just a quick thank you for making a sweet product!

I'm totally impressed with the Harmonizer. The backlit display was a nice surprise. Build quality is great all the way down to the hoses supplied with the unit. Got my GS dialed in in no time. Couldn't be easier.

Nice to meet you the other day, and I hope you're feeling better.

Thanks! Glad you like it.

Nice to meet you, too.

Grok,

A suggestion for some additional sales.....

Do a writeup on balancing the LC8 Motor for the 950/990 Adventure and post it up in the orange crush forum.

I'm sure you would get a few additional sales if they only knew.........

Edit: BTW, I'm a past customer who finds your device very easy to use and am very happy with the purchase.

That's a good idea. I'll have to call my buddy with a 990 and see if he'll let me take off some plastic.
Maybe not tho - he won't let me ride it

Oh lawdy!

Wow, had some time on my hands yesterday, synched the throttle bodies on my r1150rt. I had done it maybe a month or so ago with a TM, I thought I had done a pretty good job. Needless to say, the Harmonizer was dead easy to use, the bike runs much smoother, feels like a different machine....I hope you sell a million of these!

Great work!
Bo

Thanks!
I love to hear this kind of stuff!
I'm not sure everyone will see such dramatically different results, but I'm glad you are happy with it!

OK, I'm in. Ordered one today and hope it provides better results than my homemade yardstick-mounted, ATF filled manometer.

Homemade manometer accuracy depends entirely on the consistency of the tubing diameter.

The Harmonizer is more fun

Just ordered one!

I just ordered a Harmonizer after reading Tom Cutter's positive test report to the Airheads mailing list.

Thanks!
Can't hurt to have a positive review from Rubber Chicken Racing!

Is the new 2,3 and 4 cylinder Harmonizer going to be bigger or the same size as the 2 cylinder one?
